Rilla Khaled (PhD, Victoria University of Wellington) is an Associate Professor in the Department of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University in Montréal, Canada, where she teaches interaction design, design theory, programming, and more. She is the director of the Technoculture, Art and Games (TAG) Research Centre, Canada's most well-established games research lab, in the Milieux Institute for Arts, Culture, and Technology. Dr. Khaled's research is focused on the use of interactive technologies to improve the human condition, a career-long passion that has led to diverse outcomes, including designing award-winning serious games, developing a framework for game design specifically aimed at reflective outcomes, working with Indigenous communities to use contemporary technologies to imagine new, inclusive futures, creating speculative prototypes of near-future technologies, and establishing foundations for materials-based game design research.
